Hello All,

Here are a selection of some Hungarian Fusiliers I painted up as part of a commission completed in May and June.


Infantry Regiment Splenyi Nr. 51.

The cold, crisp white was achieved as follows.

Undercoat: Halfords White
Basecoat: VMC Grey White
Wash: 1:1 Citadel Nuln Oil and VMC Acrylic Medium
Highlight: Citadel Ulthuan Grey (VGC Ghost Grey)
Glaze: Citadel Skull White

Always great to learn different ways of doing white. In my hands nothing works frankly. I am too impatient.

I do like a posting with "added content" like this. More than just a series of pictures, but also added comment or instructions.

At least you have avoided the bug this time and the title is correct! many thanks

Oh wonderful and Thank you. Had no clue it happened to my post. I will amend. And I'm glad to help, it seems silly not to add extra information into an already convoluted topic!

Another quick fire way is to just use Ulthuan Grey with a recess wash and then neaten back up with it after the wash dries. If you spray with satin varnish before the wash, it will run into the crevices easier leaving a less stained raised surface.

The troops look great.
